Thank you for publishing the LAFD Chief’s brush report. It confirms what I have observed every year for 24 summers living in Station 69’s jurisdiction (not just this COVID year): almost perfect compliance by private parcels (95%), but only 24% compliance by public parcels. That includes the City owned, DWP administered land surrounding the Chautauqua reservoir. It is frustrating and concerning that the City is its own bad example and scofflaw!
Kind of funny the juxtaposition of the letter to the editor regarding affordable housing and the listings of homes for sale in the Palisades. And very disappointing the recommendation by the Democratic Club to not support the two senate bills. Afterall, this terrific legislation is written and sponsored by a group of nothing but Democratic senators!
Monday’s LA Times featured an article titled “Young People Drive Virus Surge”. That stood out to me, recalling a group of about 20 local teens gathered on the bluffs Saturday evening. They were in a large, tight cluster, no distancing, no masks. They left behind trash, chicken bones, and food wrappers, strewn on the ground where they stood, when there was a trash container only a few yards away on the bluff. The Palisades teens’ entitled disregard for their friends, families, and community is truly sad. What would it take for them to wear a mask and clean up their trash?
People who allow their gardeners to poison our air with gas-blowers are the same as people who don’t wear masks. Both are science deniers; both are a danger to others.
The scenery from viewpoints in the Palisades continues to be spectacular. It always encourages a moment to just pause, look out, and appreciate how beautiful it really is.
I heard that Moku Sushi is struggling, especially after indoor dining shutdown again. We have always enjoyed their service and their food, please be sure to support them extra hard in the coming weeks to make sure they stay open and we don’t lose them. It would be a shame.
